That’s good, I played Gears 4 last year and whilst I enjoyed it, it very much felt like the original Gears (not that that’s a bad thing, I was expecting more changes)

I have ordered it so shall play that soon

It was OK, not been in a rush to replay it again and unlike Photek I am a massive Gears fan. 4 was better now that I think about it in regards to both SP and MP.

Get Teh Fook! JD is a pleb, Kait and Del forever! :wub:

I like the new Gears 5 mp system, you play alongside others against AI bots for 5 games to get a rank before you go into the actual proper MP. I also think Gears 5's combat relies less on Shotguns than the others.... which is obviously better.

I thought Gears 5 was a massive improvement. Hopefully next gen they'll be able to expand on the open world stuff.

I think there’s a reason JD is a pleb in 5 (Something something choice without spoilering it too much) which is a shame as I liked him in 4. Del not so much in 4 but again was better in 5.

Halfway into Act 4 of Gears 5 and honestly you'd have to be mad to think 4 is better. :slol:

The Boltok Pistol is OP as fook tho:

The Coalition is taking its shot at Gears 5 story DLC in December, Gears developers told IGN, and it'll be available on the Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Series consoles.

"All I can say is December and the title is Hivebusters, so it might give you a little hint as to what that content might contain," said Zoe Curnoe, Gears 5 principal lead producer. "That'll be available on the new consoles as well, so it'll be optimized for those two."

In Gears 5, the Hivebusters are a squad of three who never make an appearance in the campaign but instead star in the new mode Escape. Team Scorpio's Keegan, Lahni, and Mac are the default squad (though you can go in with one of your choosing) that infiltrate Swarm hives on what would be considered suicide missions to destory the enemy strongholds from the inside. Team Scorpio doesn't have much of an identity in Gears 5, though they do have an origin story in the Gears of War: Hivebusters comics.

Other than an estimated playtime of 3-4 hours, Curnoe said more DLC details, including whether or not it'll cost anything, will be shared in early December. Members of The Coalition previously said they weren't interested in developing story DLC for Gears. Curnoe said the philosophy of the statement is still true in that they don't want to hold anything back when developing a campaign, but chose to develop the expansion after fan requests.

The DLC should be good. We'll see how the OP5 goes. But im totally not impressed that the fat faced blue alien from guardians of the galaxy is replacing Marcus. That can go strawberry float off.

That's optional, you don't have to play as him just continue using the proper Fenix skin.

But he’s invisible if he stand really still and moves slowly.

Handy to have that in game?

More details on the 10th Nov changes -

Starting November 10, you play as your favorite character and weapon skins in campaign.

We’ve brought back the popular yet diabolical Inconceivable Mode. The hardest version of Gears 5 is here to push you to your limits.

If that’s not enough, Ironman Mode is for you. It’s simple, just complete the campaign without dying in any difficulty. No problem, right?

We can’t wait to see the people that complete the dual Ironman/ Inconceivable mode.

And for the achievement hunters out there, we’ve added 5 new achievements (95 Gamerscore)

Achievement Description Points
Ironed Out Complete all chapters in Ironman Mode on Experienced difficulty or above 50
That’s Inconceivable! Complete all chapters on Inconceivable difficulty 30
Showin’ a little skin Complete a chapter of Campaign while using a Custom Skin 5
Just showing it off Kill 10 enemies using a weapon with a Custom Skin 5
Batista Bomb Complete all chapters in one Act while Batista as Marcus is enabled 5


One of the biggest updates we’re making is the addition of 16 mutators that will change the look, difficulty, and experience of Gears 5’s campaign.

The power of the new Xbox Series X | S means Gears 5 will feel more responsive and look better than it ever! Here is a breakdown of the technical upgrades you should expect the first time you fire up Gears 5 on your new Xbox.

PC Ultra visual feature set (this is more true on Series X)
PC Ultra-HD texture pack (Series X only)
60 FPS (Series X only) cinematics allowing more seamless blending between gameplay and cinematics
120 FPS in Versus
Screen Space Global Illumination which gives your scene dynamic bounce lighting
Contact Shadows allowing per-pixel accurate shadowing
4x improvement in load times
50% more particles than PC Ultra
Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) for more responsive gaming

Ultimately, the update for Gears 5 is a really nice boost for an already great game. It doesn't change any of the core game design, of course - if you were a fan of the original release, you'll probably enjoy this even more, but for those that aren't, it won't change anything - but with that said, the visual improvements are excellent. The new lighting features, improved shadows, increased detail and smoother overall frame-rate are all welcome changes and Gears 5 still features one of the best HDR implementations out there. The only thing that remains to be seen is how it stacks up on Xbox Series S, and how that stacks up to the full-fat Series X experience...

I'm glad they've totally changed the online rewards, can actually earn skins reasonably easily. Look forward to more maps!

The X update in campaign is unreal, Batista in story mode is pretty cool as well.
